Grilled mushrooms can be a perfect topping for burgers, steaks, chicken, or an ingredient on a kabob! Or, serve up a batch as the perfect tasty side dish. Either way, push aside any worries and follow the Easy Grilled Mushroom recipe below for a mouth-watering batch.
Button style mushrooms are perfect for this recipe and for kabobs etc. The trick is to make sure that the mushrooms are all about the same size. This allows for even cooking. That being said, find the type you enjoy, buy them, rinse, remove any dirt particles, and pat dry with a paper towel. For me, portobello mushrooms, are best suited for grilling as a main dish such as a portabella burger or stuffed portabella.
You can grill directly on grill grates but I prefer using a grilling basket such as the BBQ Dragon Rolling Grill Basket! Of course, you can also grill using wooden or metal skewers. And, you can halve the mushrooms if they are big… or if you just feel like it.
Easy Grilled Mushrooms
The sky is the limit! – This recipe is for hearty – steak associated flavor. But feel free to try things out. You can use red wine, mustard-based sauces, your favorite seasonings and more.
- 1 pound button mushrooms rinsed, cleaned

- Preheat your grill – get the charcoal and other items to grill ready. Place the clean and dry mushrooms in a bowl. Combine the remaining ingredients except for parsley in a saucepan. Heat slightly and double as needed depending on the size of your mushrooms. Pour the mixture over the mushrooms and stir to evenly coat then place them in the BBQ Dragon Rolling Grill Basket.

You can also toss some sliced onions in the grilling basket for a tasty addition.
